This is a first for me – back to my first ventures to Vegas, I always stopped by the WSOP, even if it was for a few hours. Later I had a media pass and went to take pictures and say “Hi” to players I know that come to Vegas during the series.
The dreams are still running but distorted lately, I’m not in the stress mode of trying to get to work or deal a game, although Jennifer Harman, my ex-husband poker player, and a few others are popping into the dreams, they’ve taken on a different texture lately. But in the meantime, the dreams of thousands of others are kicking off tomorrow in Las Vegas as the WSOP brings the pros, wannabes, newbs, and everything in between into Sin City.
it took a big dip…that’s the streak with my ‘post everyday’ idea that fell through. If good intentions carried the field, I’d be first when the checkered flag hit every time. Some days are good days for me, others are so-so, and some are just downright shit-tae!
I got to see it early this a.m. What a spectacular treat, especially from my spot in the desert. I almost missed it because I thought it was supposed to be red around 2 a.m. Luckily for me, I got a text from one of the truck driving duo and ran out onto the deck. There it was!!!

I must not be the only one that ever wonders WTF the feds were really accomplishing when they shut down online poker to the masses. And I must not be the only one that feels I possibly could have started to glean a nice little weekly stack from grinding online. And it’s possible I would score in tournaments too. I feel I got cheated in more ways than one by the U.S. government over the years and online poker is, once again, at the top of the “Linda-got-cheated” stack. Continue reading Damn government!
Another Valentine’s Day is about to close the chapter on making your BF/GF or mate or mom or dad or kid or someone out there feel special. How did it go? I’ve been single for so long I can’t help but wonder what the fuss is all about. If you love someone, want to be with them, want to make them happy, then it should be a project for 365 days of the year. Continue reading Hearts and flowers
I got lost or something. I do remember Christmas and New Year and all the
insanity fun in between though. I keep trying to outrun time and life and I’m losing the battle.
For work reasons and pure poker interest I’ve followed a lot of the World Series of Poker on WSOP.com and PokerNews Live Reporting. Continue reading The Land of the Equalizer – Poker
I’m going to experiment with a new approach to blogging. Getting out a bottle of wine, toasting off a coupla glasses, and then stumbling to the computer and blindly searching out this page to start scribbling again – on a weekly basis. Like…maybe 2-3 times a week. Keep in mind that my best blogging (IMHO) is done when I’m pissed or have a point to make. Since I no longer deal to the butt-tards of high limit (thank you GOD!), the posts may be a confused jumble of WTF! But…I need to start somewhere and stay with it. If I don’t, I may as well seal the door on Table Tango. I opt to keep the door open for now. Continue reading Checking in – and PokerStars buys Full Tilt Poker!
Happy, happy everyone! Take the stress out of your life and eat a chocolate bunny today. Yeah…chocolate cures the ills of the world. I wish I had some right now. Instead I’m coming off one of the worst sessions of feel-bad that I can ever remember having.
